New Club409!

Didn't have time to post about it earlier, but I had a copy paste error with the search script.

v1.1.1:  Fixed post search result link to use thread id.

I guess the next major release will be to integrate the old data.  Ideally I can make it so you can still add posts to the old threads, but not sure how that'll work.  I'll have to append new posts to the old threads, so performance might be slow.  I may end up just porting all the data to my data model.  We'll see though.

I would suggest that you port the data. Then if I ever get the other version of the site operational again, we can just port it all back, including all the new content that we create here.

Although this version is pretty sweet, so I don't know how likely that is :)

  •  Integrated old 409 data!
  • Data is read only, and isn't searchable.
  • I'm not displaying old post counts due to performance (for now)
  • Images hosted on old site don't work
The server version of the mysql data provider is old, so the old data isn't viewable right now.  I should be able to resolve the issue with a config change, but I have a meeting from 2-4, so I can't fix the issue right now.

Mkay, it's up!  Fixed the config on my end.  At first it couldn't open a connection, but it's working now.  

There's a little bit of lag, so I need to work on improving performance with the larger dataset, but at least we can view the old data now.

In the mean time I can work on porting the data over and fully integrating it so we can add posts to the old threads.  

edit:  I take it back, it only works intermittently.  There may be additional IP addresses that Matt needs to add to the list.
edit2: Maybe when it worked I was actually still in my local, because it hasn't worked again. :(  So close!

I found a config setting that's supposed to help with this intermittent connection issue, which is a side effect of azure's VIPs (virtual IP) that are used.  It's working much more consistently now, so try out Old409.  Let me know if you notice issues.

what is this html5 i keep hearing about, does 409 do it? i'm trying to post this:

    <video poster=""; preload="auto" autoplay="autoplay" muted="muted" loop="loop">
        <source src=""; type="video/webm">
        <source src=""; type="video/mp4">
        <p>Your browser does not support HTML5 video!</p>;

also, the post button is greyed when you go to edit source mode, but when you click to go back to regular posting it eats some of the code sometimes

The new 409 is written using html5.  

The reason some text is removed when you switch back from editor mode is that the editor has parser rules that checks for bad html, and makes sure only tags I've configured are passed through.  I didn't add the video tag to the white list, so it's getting removed from the post.  I disable the post button during source mode because switching back to regular mode causes the parser rules to be enforced, and it makes you aware that something was removed.  So be careful when modifying source, because if you have an opening html tag, but no corresponding close tag, the editor may remove it.

I'll add video and the related tags and attributes to the white list, so you should be able to post the video after that.

If you have tags you want added in the future, post about it in the developer forum, and I'll add it when I get a chance.

Edit: You're good to go!
